About this project

The Basics

The Challenge

In one minute get your team to guess as many clues as possible in three rounds that will test your memory and creativity in ways you will regret:

Not Your Mama's Veggies

This salad is bursting with oh-so-innocent-seeming clues that are definitely anything but. Ok, they're just plain nasty. The good news is that we sometimes give extra points if you go with the R-rated meaning. Don't be embarrassed if you have to look up a few...or pretend that you have to. 

The Good News

Like any healthy one-night stand, you'll need to pretend this never happened. So the game is designed to be fully recyclable. When you're done playing—if you don't feel like jamming it all back into the bowl—just throw the damn thing in the bin with the rest of the empties.

Ingredients*
1. 180 genius clues.
2. A few blanks in case you’re that creative type.
3. Crystal clear directions and a scorecard. 
*Does not include definitions or a timer. Really? You have a phone.

Who the Hell Made This?

Bad Parent Anonymous, that's who. We are a group of surprisingly upstanding citizens who are all gainfully employed and are actually somewhat okay parents...unless someone out there knows differently. This group loves nothing more than cracking open a couple of cold ones and getting silly.

So it won’t come as a big surprise that the idea for Tossed Salad Game came to us on vacation—and yes, a few beverages had been consumed. The rest is history. We stayed up well into the night laughing our you-know-whats off. And in the morning—once the bloodies were in hand and the hang-over fog had cleared—it came to us: the world needs to laugh this hard; the world needs its salad tossed.

But you understand our need to stay under the radar, right? Who needs their angelic seven-year-old asking about a "teabag" over dinner? Who needs their boss pulling them aside to clarify "ass tulip?" Who needs Granny saying that her neighbor saw your name in the paper..something about a "brown eye?" But some ideas—the telephone, the post-it note, the ATM (sorry couldn’t resist), Tossed Salad—beg to be brought into the light, no matter the risk. So take our advice. Play the game. Offend Your Friends. Recycle the Whole Damn Thing. ENJOY!!

We would love to see photos or videos of your tossing in action. Tag us on Instagram @tossedsaladgame or email us at tossers@tossedsaladgame.com.

Risks and challenges

Apart from the very real risk of us all being run out of town, the challenge of this project has been keeping our costs to a minimum while keeping this brilliant design intact. Tossed Salad Game costs more to make than a simple card game. The clues themselves are the content and the design all rolled into one. Originally we thought it would be super easy to send the little paper clues to a printer and have them run them through an industrial crumpling machine. Yeah, no. Said machine does not exist. So disappointed but not deterred, we researched every possible option for folding paper (it turns out there are a lot) and concluded that good-old fashioned hand-crumpling was by far the most aesthetically pleasing and the most cost-effective for our backers—and it looks the most like a salad after all.

So, sit back and appreciate all the heavy lifting we've done for you: it's late at night; the party is going great; and you surely have consumed more than a couple beers. You want to keep the fun going with an awesome game. But if you were to take the time to sit down, come up with these inspired clues, cut them up, crumple them and find the damn bowl, everyone will have passed out. So....here's your answer. You're welcome.

HAPPY TOSSING!!
